Dedduanglek Goes To 4-0 In ONE, Black Panther And Suriyanlek Put On Thriller At ONE Friday Fights 35
It was never going to be an easy feat to top the epic ONE Friday Fights 34 showcase that went down inside Lumpinee Boxing Stadium last week.
But the world’s largest martial arts organization took the task to heart and blessed the watching world with another electric card at ONE Friday Fights 35 on Friday, September 29.
The riveting event, which went out live in Asia primetime, was packed with slugfests across Muay Thai, MMA, and kickboxing – and top-to-bottom excitement was the result.
Before attention shifts to Singapore for ONE Fight Night 14: Stamp vs. Ham later today, here’s a recap of everything that happened in Bangkok, Thailand, at ONE Friday Fights 35.
Dedduanglek’s Impressive Striking Overcomes Kongsuk
In the main event, Kongsuk Fairtex and Dedduanglek Tded99 gave it their all in a tightly contested three-round flyweight Muay Thai battle, showing plenty of heart and technical brilliance to wrap up another special night in the Thai capital.
Both men, renowned for their Muay Femur style, stuck to their bread and butter to try and gain the advantage. Kongsuk did well to breach his rival’s guard, and Dedduanglek danced to the same beat while ensuring he replied with more volume every time he took a hit.
By the third round, however, Kongsuk started missing more than he landed, which allowed Dedduanglek an opening to cap the fight off with his fierce kicking game, earning him a clear-cut unanimous decision win in the end.
With the victory – his fourth in succession at ONE Friday Fights – Deduanglek improved his record to 54-10.
Black Panther Ends Suriyanlek’s Perfect Run In ONE In Epic Battle
Suriyanlek set the tone with heavy leg kicks, and he stalked his Thai compatriot with dangerous intentions. But Black Panther flipped the fight on its head in the second frame and returned fire in similar fashion.
The 23-year-old star butchered Suriyanlek with leg kicks to set up powerful combinations and dropped him to the canvas midway through the round. The Por Yenying/Bravery Gym representative wasn’t going out like that, though.
The pair threw hell for leather in the final stanza, but Black Panther’s heavy hands dropped Suriyanlek once more.
Both knockdowns, coupled with his aggression, proved to be the deciding factor for the judges, and all three handed the Team Mehdi Zatout athlete the win to move him to 78-17 overall.
Batman Obliterates Rungsangtawan With First-Round Uppercut
The former Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Champion went after his rival from the opening bell of the 136-pound catchweight Muay Thai bout, trying to punch his way through Rungsangtawan’s kicks.
That aggression paid off for the 28-year-old Kiatpet athlete, as he stepped in with a thunderous left uppercut that crashed straight through his rival’s guard.
The shot knocked Rungsangtawan out at 1:37 of round one, pushing Batman’s record to 69-22.
Sagaengarm Drops Ploykhao For Third-Round TKO Win
The Jitmuangnon Gym athlete started the fight with all guns blazing, throwing punches in bunches and alternating with elbows, one of which opened his foe early on.
Although Ploykhao struggled to piece anything together, credit where it’s due, he hung on and replied with some cracking body shots that momentarily pushed his Thai compatriot onto the backfoot.
None of that seemed to deter Sagaengarm from his goal of finding a third finish in ONE, however, and he connected with a salvo of shots to seal the deal 45 seconds into the final frame to improve his record to 102-32 overall.
Jomhod Scores Decision Win After Fiery Three-Round Affair
Two of Muay Thai’s hottest young talents took to the ONE ring for the first time on Friday night, and the star power of Jomhod VK Khaoyai saw him edge past Petparuehat Sitnayoktaweeptaphong in their 120-pound catchweight Muay Thai battle.
Jomhod’s game plan was clear from the start as he immediately pressed his compatriot and dropped bombs throughout the opening round. Petparuehat soon started to read the combinations, though, and he came back in the second frame, landing dynamic counters.
Back-and-forth action took center stage for the remainder of the bout as a result, but it was Jomhod’s pressure and aggression that earned him the unanimous decision in the end.
The PK Saenchai MuayThaigym star scored his 49th career victory with the debut win.
Patakaek Bests Prikthaidam In Hard-Fought Battle
A nip-and-tuck first round saw both men trying to find their rhythm at range and inside the clinch, but Patakaek’s accuracy came to the fore in round two as he scored with straight punches and left kicks.
Prikthaidam was constantly looking to land heavy punches, and he began to find his mark in round three, but it wasn’t enough to sway the judges.
They recognized Patakaek’s precision as the difference between the two stars and handed him the unanimous decision win to move his record to 61-15.
Nabati’s Striking Masterclass Sees Off Pongsiri
The Russian striker gave his rival a taste of his own medicine, working behind his jab and following up with huge knees, shovel hooks, and straights inside the pocket.
His work on the body, in particular, seemed to have done most of the damage, as Pongsiri began shifting down gears at the midway point of the fight.
That only prompted the Archangel Michael representative to increase his output, and he went wild with three-piece and four-piece combinations to close out the contest.
All three judges at ringside handed the win to Nabati in the end upping his slate to 19-0.
Sattari Controls Rambo En Route To Debut Win
“The Iranian Superman” kept his strikes clean, sharp, and precise throughout the entertaining battle. His Thai foe had his moments, but Sattari’s composure and game plan allowed him to avoid most of the trouble on offer.
The debuting star set himself apart further in the final minutes when he cut Rambo with a well-timed elbow on the inside.
Ultimately, Sattari’s control and aggressive pace earned him a debut win via unanimous decision, pushing his overall slate to 28-9.
Boutasaa Earns Decision Nod In Kickboxing Battle With Karabag
Boutasaa looked comfortable early on, evading his Turkish rival’s power shots to score with kicks and straight punches.
Karabag found a home for his hands in round two, however, and he had “Too Sharp” reeling off a left hook-right cross combination. But the Moroccan star saw out the round and came back strong in the final frame.
Boutasaa used stabbing push kicks to the body and head to make the most of his reach advantage, and that did enough to convince the judges to hand him a close unanimous decision win that moved his record to 16-2.
Chanajon Edges Past Jarvis In Hard-Fought Battle
The Thai athlete first relied on a heavy kicking game to dismantle the 23-year-old Englishman, then he switched weapons and hammered away with body shots and elbows at every chance.
For the most part, Chanajon had his foe’s back against the ropes, though Jarvis did manage to get into a rhythm in the third round.
But it was a little too late for the debuting star, and the PK Saenchai MuayThaigym star’s volume and accuracy pushed him to a split-decision win in the end.
Chanajon’s third straight victory at ONE Friday Fights improved his overall slate to 113-30.
Phetchumpair Decimates Brierley In 90-Second Clinic
The Thai debutant controlled the dynamic from the offset, landing the cleaner strikes on her British foe.
Phetchumpair then stung Brierley with a right hand down the middle, and her finishing instincts took over from there.
She remained relentless with her pressure and brought an end to proceedings with a huge right hand at 1:30 of the first round to claim her 21st career victory.
Radzuan Dominant Against Olsim, Scores Final-Round Submission
Although Olsim popped Radzuan with some sharp rights early on, it was “Shadow Cat” that dominated the vast majority of their 120.8-pound catchweight MMA battle.
She had her way with her Filipino foe in the grappling exchanges, throwing her to the ground and landing strikes from dominant positions.
In round three, Olsim tried to avoid being mounted by the Malaysian powerhouse, but Radzuan was a step ahead, and she deftly latched onto a triangle choke before cranking on an armbar to force the tap at 1:34, extending her MMA record to 9-3.
